Ron has been photographing most of his life, beginning when his father gave him a box camera at age 12. He became moderately serious about it when he moved to the Northwest in 1978, eventually acquired a 4x5 view camera, and began attending workshops with Barnbaum, Kirby, Levy and other West Coast photographers. He had a career as a research scientist in molecular biology until he retired in 2002 from the Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and devoted himself to photography full time. With Roy Harrington’s help he adapted the Quadtone RIP as a tool for making digital negatives and has written two books on that subject. His photo interests are varied, ranging from printing in palladium and other antique processes to using the latest digital tools to photograph birds and wildlife.

He resides with his wife, Judith Roan, on Mercer Island, WA.
